Along with in-body stabilization, the X-H1 gains a new, quieter shutter mechanism. What do you expect? Fuji 23mm f/1.4. In other cases I couldn't see much difference, at least not in sharpness. FUJIFILM X-T3 Firmware Update v4.00. The X-H1 will be its own flagship, and I respect that. Now, as the year winds down, we're highlighting some of our standout products of the year. The X-H1 has a new option, Eterna, which is modeled after Fujifilm's motion picture stock. No shame, no honor, no respect, just greed. The new Laowa 15mm F4.5 Shift lens lets you go wide with perspective control. Honestly, pictures like that do not require IBIS :). [with added grip] for longer power. But for travels I would most definitely pick the 70-200F4. If you are used to Nikon’s one-click zoom feature on advanced DSLRs, you can do the same thing on the X-H1 by simply pressing the rotary dial while playing back images, which is very nice. Isn't that a sign to abandon the ship? What changed the game for you? I thought the X-H1 images and especially the video looked great. Yongnuo, makers of lenses, cameras and other photo accessories, has filed a patent for a modular mirrorless camera system. Because 44x33 sensor is a clear winner (even Fuji propagandists agree). There are people happy with RX10 IV, m43, and even Nikon 1 system. alright, fuji brings out XT3 but what if it doesn't have IBIS and ergo of XH1. For those unfamiliar with the difference between the old-school Fuji dials and modern, so-called "soft dials" a discussion of the trade-offs would be useful. Additionally, the IBIS on my A992 & A7R3 is excellent. If I were a Fuji user I would probably be pretty happy. What makes Fuji different is that they have really focused on making a quality crop sensor camera that is both portable and easy to use and produces 'trendy' looking images with their 'filters'. I'd rather have a 100-400mm instead.With UWA prime a few steps back or forth cannot really affect the landscape framing or perspective. At ISO 400+ it's just like any regular crop camera with a super sharp lens, where detail start being destroyed by noise anyways.I doubt that Panasonic is just as good. You can't win this. I realize there are a number of current Fuji shooters who eagerly placed pre-orders for the X-H1 and are now enjoying doing photography the camera. Of course there will be less noise on the bigger sensor depending again on technology and size of photosites. Then everything will be way out of balance. Same size, same weight, same production costs. I'm a very happy Fuji XT-2 user, and over time (it's too early yet) I will definitely upgrade to the X-H1. While you were focussing on the top right...I was looking at the light in the background....Fully rendered by the Fuji, and blown out by the Sony. the f-stop difference I have inflicted on the FF is making the scene darker (and I should have used f8.4 to match the APS-C f5.6, if it had been possible). Assuming both go to the same base ISO, then there's scope for opening the ff camera up to f2.8 or giving it roughly 1.3EV longer exposure, before it clips). If I compare two lenses on different sensors, 16-35mm FF and 10-24mm APS-C with the same aperture. Yet they do, and if you take a picture with the same parameters, let's say 24mm f2.8 1/60s ISO 100, on two different cameras the scene will have as much light (give or take light transmission on the lens, actual ISO, etc...). Larger bucket. As we continue to test Nikon's update of its multimedia full-framer, we've added more of our findings so far on image quality, dynamic range and video quality. You can shoot worse pictures with better cameras too. In this buying guide we’ve rounded up all the current interchangeable lens cameras costing under $1000 and recommended the best. Thank you for this review. Back in 2014, I bought an Olympus E-M5, and this year I bought a Fuji X-H1. Or you can turn it around and consider that what do you need to carry to shoot portraits with at least DOF of 25cm? Laws of physics are not compatible with such delusional nonsense. Fujifilm announces new firmware for GFX 50S, X-T3, and X-H1, Fujifilm firmware update adds internal Log and 120 fps video to X-T2, Fujifilm interview: "We will work hard to keep our uniqueness", Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN Sample Gallery (DPReview TV), Sigma 35mm F2 DG DN Sample Gallery (DPReview TV), Laowa 15mm F4.5 Zero-D Shift lens sample gallery (DPReview TV). I still can't believe Canon messed up so tragically with their 6D Mark II. Trolling.Leica especially brings out the economic experts. It just doesn't fit the vintage aesthetics of Fuji. All looks so good, however the price tag comes in close to where we can get a FF like Pentax K-1 or the Sony A7iii... sure many better options in les than half that price for crop sensor! "one cannot compare lenses/systems solely on f-stop equivalence" - It's not just "f-stop equivalence". If you combine 3 vertical shots into 1 landscape image and then down-sample it to match the original resolution, you will see that the image quality improves a lot. Depending on which system you're in and what your needs are, they might just be the compact, well-priced and impressively sharp little primes you've been looking for. And now thanks to the Fuji, I can capture them in 4K. Whether or not the quality is actually there is not the point. More facts! Will someone from this site, explain to me how that can even be explained? You will need to go take following pictures:1) A close portrait, native ISO, flash lighting, DOF from nose tip to the ears2) A 20mm FOV f/16 landscape, native ISO3) A f/2.8 shot of a running kid, as fast shutter speed as possible. Because APS-C is more than twice smaller than FF and it shows in the actual images. At home I'm using the Sony A7 II or now the D800. Fuji pricing for apsc is rather aggressive, based on the fact that the masses will never print large and mostly use internet sharing, Fuji has said that apsc is as good as full frame, this is not true but commerically speaking their strategy works very well because more users will buy it and will never see the difference between aspc and ff at small enlargement. In this mode the sensor being activated starts the exposure but a physical shutter is still used to end it, so that you significantly reduce the risk of shutter shock without increasing the risk of rolling shutter. Different instead of better - wrong. We spent some time at CP+ talking with senior executives from Fujifilm about the runaway success of the GFX system, how the company is moving into video and, of course, Instax. No, F4.2 on FF does NOT put more light on sensor than on APS-C (looking at the same area). If I were a wildlife or sports photographer, and I needed the best AF system available from Fuji, the X-T3 would probably be a better choice. Sorry, but you're going to have to prove that "I can crop my FF + $200 and get the same IQ than your APS-C $500 lens". @richard: thanks for taking the time to answer. Don't you know there FF mirrorless cameras too? However, for typical portraiture, landscape and travel photography that I do, I realized that the new autofocus features and other improvements on the X-T3 do not outweigh the amazing IBIS capability of the X-H1. That's why they are big and expansive. In the key prime focal lengths, you actually have to buy 2 lenses to get the capabilities of 1 lens from other brands. adding a headphone jack might be a small thing for some but from product development point they have consider many things like reliability etc.i'm not telling that it's OK, I'm just explaining it. Today, at its Snapdragon Tech Summit, Qualcomm revealed the details of its new Snapdragon 888 system on a chip (SoC) that, amongst performance and battery improvements, offers an array of impressive photographer features, should Android smartphone manufacturers choose to make the most of them. If you want quality - don't use high ISO, seriously :). The MFT offerings are strong on price and performance - but not everyone wants the smaller sensor. Focal Length: 23mm (35mm equivalent) Dimensions: 2.83 x 2.83 x … One could argue that Fujifilm rushed with the X-H1 release, using the same X-Processor Pro processor as what we have previously seen on the X-T2, instead of the more advanced and faster X-Processor 4 that is found on the newer X-T3. Because you can have one with a lens or two for less than a grand. While in Max's video the Fuji's footage is clearly darker while using the same setting as the Sony's, that's cheating. Fujifilm will be releasing firmware updates for six cameras in April in May. Then on A7r II for example they used back illumination to gain a little light and copper wiring to have less noise. They even add a screen to the top, the likes of which has been on DSLRs for years. Um no. There's only one equivalence and it works for everything simultaneously. Maybe you can't see the difference between APS-C and MFT either. Today I got a chance to handle the X-H1 at a Fujifilm demo event at Henry's in Toronto. Fuji was good enough to make lenses for Hasselblad, and I'd gather that counts for a bit more than a personal opinion. Also on the 100-400 Fuji versus Sony, the Fuji is the same weight as the more expensive Sony but a lot longer effective focal length. The DSLR market is relegating to a niche rather than a mainstream market. "Why is it so hard to understand that I don't like the results, specially for the price." The electronic shutter makes it perfectly possible. People seem to think f/4 doesn't create enough background separation but I know for a fact they'd be shocked to see it's basically the same. Despite your opinion, some believe it's the best value optics overall. Now, three months later, the company has confirmed in a statement that the personal information of past and current employees was taken from its servers. Crops do not have ISOs equivalent to FF ISO 100 or ISO 64.Your theories really are fairy tales. No they're identical. I doubt anyone will buy the X-H1 now. A7r II has less noise than A7 II because they changed the technology. All of the Fuji filters can be applied to any raw file from any brand. In other words, you'll explode if this comments section on this camera review site works as intended for people who search out "camera review" and "camera comparisons". Tried one out yesterday, and also the Sony A7 and A9, the Oly EM1 and the Nikon D500 - I'm looking for an upgrade to my Nikon kit and seriously considering jumping ship for something lighter. Only if you are a fool who fails to even do the most basic post processing work this is an issue. Your Fujifilm camera has three basic focus modes. However, Canon and Nikon employed is diffractive optics that reduce the size and weight, but at the expense of cost! This explains the better low light performance (at the same F-number, ISO and shutter speed, a larger sensor gets more light. As of September 2019, oddly you can get the X-H1 with the VPB-XH1 Vertical Power Gripas a kit (camera & grip weigh 34.3 oz./972g with card and one battery) at a deep package discount … Yes, a Sony FF A9 or A7** would be smaller -- but won't feel this solid. @MarksphotoSuperior IQ in what terms? For that price it would by a D500. GM 24-70mm f2.8 obviously is another better option with the aperture the APS-C can't touch, but the price is much higher.On another topic, I bought a D800 in the meantime. I'd get mine new at Adorama, at Amazon, at B&H or at Crutchfield, or used at eBay. My cameras get used outside. And what we should emphasize in such comparison is that zooms on FF can rival primes on APS-C. The Fuji X-H1 offers up to 5.5 stops of in-body stabilisation, a high-resolution EVF & powerful autofocus performance in a newly designed body. It also helps explain the great dynamic range: if both sensors can tolerate the same number of photons per sq mm before clipping, then the large sensor still records more light about each object, before clipping. If someone decides to make 42mp APS-C camera, then you still won't be able to print as large or as high quality as 42mp FF at ISO100, because (believe it or not) APS-C image would contain much less information than FF image. Then there's also the possible abandonment of the X-T line, but then again, I don't expect any camera line will last more than a decade these days :-(. If I really want, I could still pick up a smaller X-E2 or 3 too, and still use all my lenses if I know video isn't a concern that day. Therefore zooming seems to be a handy feature. I can't be the only person who appreciates having a bigger, more grippy Fuji camera on the market, am I? Perhaps you are not ready for it yet. However, that's not even the case. But the full-frame sensors got so much better. I preferred the 12-100mm f4 IS that allows for a 5s handheld shutter speed at 24mm eq. are they shooting at home, when travelling, etc... ?Taking your example, the 40mm is one of a kind, but still on a FF body the total will be what, 900g at best with a 6D vs 500g on a X-E3. The XH1 was designed to be a bigger camera. The Fujifilm X-H1 is the company's range-topping APS-C camera and its most video-capable camera to date. It is a good thing. This camera should have been released in 2016 and named X-T2. @DarnGoodPhotosYes, Fuji's largest lenses can be larger than their FF equivalents AND even more expensive. Considering that in both cases no light is lost because the lens is made for the sensor behind it, I only see two differences: DoF and sensor performance in terms of sensitivity, dynamic range maybe. I hope Nikon first FX toy mirrorless is the same size of the D850 with a lot of goodies to shoot with my 500G..Oh yes!! For no reason would they ever switch to a crappy (A)PC(-S) ! Comparing 40mp FF vs 20mp APS-C without scaling down the larger image is silly. Now... they mate the Gfx and this lovely darling and the baby would be a 24x36mm 40 Mp slightly upscaled model. what's is that to be curious. "Finally, no, you're wrong, the FF50mm 1.8 on crop body will not crop anything, physically same hole, same light coming through." Where did you get such a notion. Maybe a little low at 84, but I love my X-H1 and will keep my X-T2. It's like a X-T series but bigger and more expensive. The Fuji might look as good or better than another camera at the same ISO by number but in fact, gives only half of the exposure value that the other camera does. I would really enjoy reading an article that scientifically demonstrates your statement. Fujifilm says it can be used as an end-point in itself or to give yourself a degree of latitude for color grading. and am not sure which is the better choice. Its ~170 g heavier, & but weighs *less* than an X-T2 w/ a RRS L-plate. I think buying a Sony, or at least licking the Sony spec sheet really makes people stupid. Take a closer look. The glass itself has its limits. They require a tripod or something to put your camera on or a flash, so you could shoot with 100% hit rate. What about "meh" or "so-so"? Some will consider a camera that is the best it could be within a set of specifications shared by its peers (I'd nominate RX10 M3/4, Ricoh GR, maybe A7 III...).And we've been over it a thousand times: larger sensors produce better quality images among the same generation, quality of lens, price range, zoom vs prime, etc... an average lens on FF (and/or old camera) won't 'destroy' a decent combination on APS-C. And if you've printed 1m wide on APS-C (on a recent camera) and it wasn't good enough, ok. On top of this comes the ability for the camera to retain a raft of settings separately for stills and video. There is no size, weight and price advantage in crop systems. A 50mm F1.8 will project the same number of photons per sq mm, regardless of what sensor you put it in front of (after all, it has no knowledge of such things). am I to understand that a FF 50mm 1.8 on a crop body should be brighter because there is more light coming through? Photographer and YouTuber Todd Dominey has shared a video that details the history of Kodak Aerochrome film, a film stock he says has 'an origin story unlike any other.'. It's only logical. And one full stop is a lot. Canon tried selling 6D2 at $2000, but it didn't go well, for obvious reasons. xTrans artifacts - wrong. Still, despite its inferior processor and AF system, the X-H1 has an overall excellent AF performance and accuracy. Equivalence makes them both the same. Ironically, one of the absolute best ideas I've seen in the last decade was Sony's implementation of the LCD on the R1. I own both brands and love them both, but to say a Ricoh GR is a professional camera compared to a XT-2 or XH-1 is stretching it by a large margin. It doesn't hit the sensor at all. - Total nonsense! Half of the light from FF 50F1.8 on a crop camera is coming and going NOWHERE. Let's take the Fuji 50mm f2 for instance, is there an equivalent that is that sharp, small, light, and cheap (did I mention WR) on Sony's side?? Also a convinced Fuji user(since x100/Pro1 and 2, coming from pro Nikon)Yet..... not long ago in possession of the X e3. Whenever a new iPhone is released, it's more expensive than the previous one and they keep selling older models at high prices. You are drinking coolaid. It's funny that people are saying, about Fujifilm's firmware upgrades, that they should have released a proper camera from the start but when Sony releases a camera with a frustrating AF (I've used at the zoo, it's tough to follow BiF or fast moving animals. all first party lenses are overpriced. I considered this for my travel camera system. What’s the best camera for less than $1000? It's a simple psychological trick. A few of the X-Series lenses can get a tad on the large size (the 16-55 2.8) and it feels right at home on this body for me. Your experience as diverse as it may sound maybe your own opinion, everyone here thinks they are an expert :). Crops with zooms are too much of a compromise for me and I'd rather take the RX10'IV instead. I used to hear Sony makes the best and most expensive TVs, then there was the VAIO, more expensive than anything else. However, as soon as you relate it to photography (where you're presumably composing a specific framing), it becomes more complex. But when comparing, instead of pushing the exposure people raise the ISO to try match the non-Fuji exposure. We're glad you asked. Yes expensive, but when I count in that in each and every shot with Sony I have to "optimize" the ok-ish, but not great color and yet struggle to get near the stunning color a Fuji outputs (in Jpeg and Raw) effortlessly in each and every shot, it is not expensive. i often cringe at how poorly the photos are and how inappropriate they seem to express the qualities we look for when judging a cameras iq ... no rhyme or reason no good for judging iso shadow behavior color and other metrics. This means discrete stills and video settings can be maintained, since the dedicated control points no longer have any affect in video mode. What Sony did isn't necessarily applicable since it is a mechanically different IBIS system. I can't convince you if you made your own observation, only if you speak from theory. Why not just get smaller FF lenses then? The slower processor put the autofocus performance of the X-H1 right in line with the X-T2, which was already excellent, but the X-T3 got a noticeably faster boost, delivering up to 3x faster image processing speeds when compared to the X-H1. ", FF sensors gather more total light than S35, just not per square area. If only it was more affordable (around $2800 CAD with the grip) I would not have hesitated to buy it.... Back to my trusty X-T10 then. The explanation for this is that the unstabilized lenses tend to be primes and are generally relatively wide focal lengths, both of which mean they're more likely to project a larger image circle than the sensor requires. 86% is a great score! That's why I also own the X-E3. As such, both are looking at the same view of the scene through the same sized hole. Now that’s an insanely useful feature that sets these mirrorless cameras apart from DSLRs – using manual focus is now extremely handy, as you no longer have to think about focus errors. 85mm lenses illustrates the future of photography. With a revised design, improved video specs and bumps to performance in numerous areas, the X-H1 certainly looks to be the most capable and versatile X Series camera to date. The front element of lens will likely be the same in order to capture the same level of light available. The X-T30 has the latest and greatest 26.1MP BSI X-Trans IV sensor and quadcore X-Processor IV, giving the top performance in areas like autofocus, face detect, on-sensor 100% coverage 425 point phase detect, top video features. If you want it to be as same as it gets you must use equivalence. Stick to apples, indeed. iI’s a stop or so faster at the same aperture but that’s not usually a problem in this lighting. Because it is about the amount of light used to create an image. Sensor size is not important for some. This "compensation tag" is just more BS to cover the previous BS. At some point, the 5~10% difference in size with the X-T2 is not really significant, given the larger grip and additional size for the manual control. I think that's stupid. Please just take a look at dpr's studio scene and you'll see that A6500, for instance, is at least on par with the original A7 when it comes to noise. The cameras include the GFX 50S, X-H1, X-T2, X-Pro2, X-E3 and X100F, with the X-T2 gaining the most features, such as focus bracketing, high speed video recording and improved phase detect AF performance. You may use whatever cameras you prefer, but FF is just better. also from what I take from your explanation, if one doesn't need the DoF and is aware of the loss of light resulting in more noise should they really pick the aperture-equivalent lens when comparing two systems? Did you even read what I wrote? While telling you stories like "money doesn't matter, it's not the most important factor, blah, blah, blah ...". Like the Pro 2, the X-H1 is too specialized for everyone. The X-H1 takes this a step further. The X-H1 auto-focus also trails far behind Sony A7-3. Terrible choice of picture. If I use auto focus or back button focus before adding the filter, as soon as I take my finger off the button has the camera unlocked the focus? It's not illogical, if you understand what the scores and ratings mean: https://m.dpreview.com/articles/4416254604/camera-scores-ratings-explained, you got me curious,so i read dprs on the scoring logic[.thanks for posting that bill.] Looks like a swell camera though. (agreed a different type of) And not wishing at all to make the change! Take your pick, can't go wrong either way. Noise not the same, DoF not the same, quality not the same, contrast not the same, price not the same, DR not the same, etc. :) Canon doesn't give a damn about enthusiast class of cameras. To take advantage of this, make sure to update the firmware on both X-H1 and your lenses, as it requires proper communication between both ends. Here is a casual shot with no breathing technique: https://s20.postimg.cc/en6h3wvgd/P5181335.jpg- 2.5s SS now with something to lean onhttps://s20.postimg.cc/9oiypdzd9/P5181332.jpg- 3.2s SS is my limit, some claim to manage 5s but I wonder if they look at 100%https://s20.postimg.cc/ijjszw8q5/P5181338.jpg. About your Sony Vs. Fuji opinion: You might be right, but there are advantages to Fuji. DPreview's own studio comparison adjust image brightness so the bodies are all in line of each other. and after all the hype XH-1 sell badly and has been heavily discounted.True Fuji success.... Let's also see how well they'll support this camera with firmware updates. The Headphone jack is there too. The A7 III is still 2299€ here, with the RX line (is there another bridge camera with the price tag of the RX10 m4?) With a little practice, this can be done without even looking. Fuji is seemingly trying to compete with the likes of Sony on their turf which isn't Fuji's strength. Panasonic is excellent and offers major video quality benefits, but bad video AF and smaller MFT sensors that produce their best cinematic footage only with adaptors. I just wonder how I could shoot an UWA without some framing leverage. Thinks the comment is clever, especially if it relates to Leica or, to a lesser degree, anything related to medium format. "am I to understand that a FF 50mm 1.8 on a crop body should be brighter because there is more light coming through?" There are four settings: Weak, Strong, Auto and Off. Sensor is not always the primary variable when choosing a camera system. About the 15mm 1.7, I think at its sharpest it's a close call between this and the Ricoh GR (dxomark is saying sharper with a 20mpix sensor, less so with the older sensors, if dxo can be used as reference, mea culpa).
